Effect of length, width, and mode on the mass detection sensitivity of piezoelectric unimorph cantilevers
We have investigated both experimentally and theoretically the resonance frequency change of a piezoelectric unimorph cantilever due to the mass loaded at the tip of the cantilever. The piezoelectricExpand
A general method for the conversion of fly ash into zeolites as ion exchangers for cesium
A general method of converting various coal ashes into zeolites was investigated. Fly ashes from several utility power plants were fused with sodium hydroxide at 550 °C followed by dissolution inExpand
Non-heavy-metal ZnS quantum dots with bright blue photoluminescence by a one-step aqueous synthesis
We have examined the aqueous synthesis of non-heavy-metal ZnS quantum dots (QDs) using 3-mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) as the capping molecule at various pH and MPA:Zn:S ratios. Transmission electronExpand
Cytotoxicity tests of water soluble ZnS and CdS quantum dots.
Cytotoxicity tests of zinc sulfide (ZnS) and cadmium sulfide (CdS) quantum dots (QDs) synthesized via all-aqueous process with various surface conditions were carried out with human endothelial cellsExpand
Synthesis of zeolites A and X from fly ashes and their ion-exchange behavior with cobalt ions
A modified fusion process was studied to synthesize zeolites A and X from fly ash. It was found that the addition of aluminum hydroxide to the fused fly ash solution followed by hydrothermalExpand

[Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3]0.63[PbTiO3]0.37 (PMN-PT) free-standing film of comparable piezoelectric properties to bulk material with thickness of 30 μm has been fabricated using a modified precursor coatingExpand
Modern Breast Cancer Detection: A Technological Review
We describe the state of the art in screening and detection for breast cancer as well as a discussion of new and emerging technologies. Expand
Soft-materials elastic and shear moduli measurement using piezoelectric cantilevers
We have developed a soft-material elastic modulus and shear modulus sensor using piezoelectric cantilevers. A piezoelectric cantilever is consisted of a highly piezoelectric layer, e.g.,Expand
All-electrical indentation shear modulus and elastic modulus measurement using a piezoelectric cantilever with a tip
We have investigated an all-electrical indentation shear modulus and elastic modulus measurement technique using piezoelectric cantilever sensors with a tip for potential in vivo applications. AExpand
